A new one

Tight. Even in the gentle breeze How can I not love myself Tight. Even with my lover’s hold Her nails piercing deep but hot Tight Like the fragrance of shampoo On my dark curly hair. Who are black men that you cannot love A nobody that makes you drop your jaws. Natural built and body […]

A horse rider

Darling, it’s not too late to leave me, Staying in love is real, Besides loving you, what else am I a failure at? I just want to know Is it too much to ask I want to I need to I try My head just doesn’t seem to remember what it feels like I call […]

SPECK

To say I did begin with nothing Just a touch of ink upon my grieving sheet Full of oil and before abandon Till it met with faith. The faint of a tiny dot, a little fly, a little warrior, a running man A speck The one who was built to have a family to speak […]

Late Lover

Sick in the skin

Let us not be worried Good things don’t come easy Like a plump enlarged backside men loves At least in my side And what flat asses do, They compensate with it not mattering in heaven. Tell me you don’t like condensed milk Do you have to wait five years to earn it? So when pills […]
